Coronavirus and car sharing

autolevi koroonaviirus sümptomid lucas-favre

Autolevi has more than 30 000 users and over 2200 vehicles across Estonia, Latvia, and Finland. This makes us the largest car-sharing platform in the region. To help prevent coronavirus from spreading amongst Autolevi’s car-sharing community, we’d like to share with you the most important steps you can take to protect your health and that of the closest to you. All recommendations can be found on the website of Estonia’s Health Board.

1. Wash hands frequently

Wash your hands properly with warm water and soap and do this more than usual. Antibacterial hand gels alone aren’t enough as they don’t kill viruses. The best way to protect yourself is to wash your hands under running water.

2. Cover your mouth when coughing

Cover your mouth when coughing and also your nose when sneezing to prevent spreading corona and other viruses impacting the respiratory system. Dispose of any used paper tissues right after blowing your nose. If you can, prefer using tissues made of recycled paper.

3. Spend time in fresh air 

Try to avoid crowded city spaces, where you could come in contact with people carrying viruses. Use your free time to hike in nature! Spending time in nature and in the fresh air is one of the best things you can do. Go for a walk in the forest, discover new tracks, and breathe fresh air. There are amazing nature spots all across Estonia, many of them you probably haven’t even visited!

4. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces

If you rent an Autolevi car or are a car owner yourself, drop some hand wipes containing alcohol in your handbag. As a car owner, please wipe down frequently touched surfaces in your car between rentals, such as the steering wheel, gear changer, door handles. Make sure you use a disinfectant that also kills viruses.

5. Stay home if you’re ill

We urge everyone feeling symptoms of coronavirus listed on the website of the Health Board to stay home and avoid traveling. If you may be infected by the coronavirus and you need to cancel your Autolevi rental please use our booking cancellation function on your bookings view.

6. Follow the news of the Health Board

Coronavirus is impacting countries in different ways. Up-to-date news on Estonia can be found in the news section of Estonia’s Health Board. We can all give our two cents to help diminish the spread of the disease.

Autolevi’s team wishes everyone good health. Spend time in nature and take care of yourself!

Autolevi’s new insurance coverage


We are stoked to announce that we have launched Autolevi’s insurance in collaboration with If Insurance. The new casco insurance is the only one in Estonia, that covers damages for peer-to-peer car sharing.

Autolevi’s insurance applies to all cars, minibuses and vans rented via the Autolevi platform. It also covers damage inflicted from collision with wild animals, which many insurance providers choose not to cover.

The new insurance has a number of advantages for car owners and renters. Autolevi’s insurance provides a sense of safety, because in case of any accident, the rental experience can be positive and you will be protected from unforeseen expenses. The insurance is seamlessly applied and all of the required documents will be automatically filled for you by Autolevi’s web platform.


How does Autolevi’s insurance work?

The rental procedure remains the same for both the renter and the owner of the car. When you have paid for your rental booking, your casco insurance policy will be generated automatically. The new insurance is valid from the moment the car owner hands over the keys until the car is returned in good time.

There are three options for insuring your car. The renter can choose an insurance cost either 3 eur per day (with up to a 1000 € deductible) or a 5 € per day (with up to a 500€ deductible). If the vehicle is older than 20 years, the insurance daily cost is 0 € and deductible up to 1000 €.

In case the cost of the damages are less than the deductible amount, only the cost of the damages has to be compensated and there is no need to pay the entire deductible amount.

The insurance policy is sent to the renter’s e-mail the next morning after the payment has been made for the booking. You do not have to print out the insurance policy, nor the Autolevi rental agreement. Both are available online.

We kindly ask you to take photographs, or even better – record a video of the vehicle before and after the rental. Photos and videos help resolve any possible disputes afterwards.

Good to know

Autolevi’s insurance is a casco insurance. All Autolevi’s car owners are still obliged to have a valid traffic insurance.

Autolevi’s insurance covers all cars rented on Autolevi’s web platform except for motorcycles and trailers, for which deductible applies up to the extent of the inflicted damage.

For cars more than 20 years old, there is no daily insurance price and a 1000 euro deductible applies.
